Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies

Our interactions and activities in the Framework: 

The Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies produces research, educates land managers, and models sustainable forestry at the Yale Forests in Connecticut, Vermont, and New Hampshire. The Yale Forests support the Climate Change Response Framework by providing forest ecology and management research and serving as a model forest for practitioners.  

Our broader climate change activities and perspectives: 

The Yale Forests model sustainable forest management and serve as centers of forest research and education for the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. A focus of this sustainable management and research is to increase the forest’s resilience and adaptability to climate change. A primary way this is accomplished is through forest management that diversifies and strengthens the species and structural characteristics of the forest, enabling the forest to better respond to both discrete climatic disturbances and longer term climate changes. Forest management research conducted at the forests provides critical information for practicing forest managers.
